A couple of years ago, I had my first magazine quilt finish – Pavement Puddles. It was featured on the cover of the first ever Make Modern Magazine, and I was thrilled! Since then, you guys have purchased the pattern yourself, but it’s taken me this long to get another version made myself! I actually finished the quilt top this time last year, but just never got around the finishing it – until today! Isn’t it beautiful? It is so very different from … Continue Reading »
What do you do when you have time off work and a WIP list a mile long?? You start something new yes? Several something’s new?? Mmhmmmm…… To make this story sound better, I will say that the following THREE new projects stemmed from leftovers of projects gone….. Firstly, I found the leftovers from blocks of a quilt that is yet to be finished. In fact, it was supposed to be a Christmas present last year. I’m hoping to get that done for this … Continue Reading »

Last month, I put together a thread set For The Boys. This month, it’s all about Pretty In Pink! I definitely had “for the girls” in mind, but I know my son is a little partial to pink, so couldn’t be biased 😉 Reminds me of fairy floss! Four perfectly gorgeous hues, bundled together for you! These will be shipped out to club subscribers mid-August, and will be available in store soon after. As always, subscriptions can be easily signed up for HERE.
When you deliver two quilts to a friend/customer and tell her you bought some gorgeous “boy” kind of fabrics in Tassie, and she says “Oh good! I have a new nephew as of last night!”, you promptly get to work on requested baby quilt. I had already put thought in to the kind of design I wanted to use these specific fabrics in, so I got to work straight away! I started with the measurements I found for a “Plus quilt” HERE, then worked … Continue Reading »
If you follow me on social media, you would know I was heartbroken by the recent passing of Prince. His songs are like a soundtrack to my youth, and I have been a massive fan of his since I first overheard his music being played by my older sister and her best friend on their tape deck, way back in the 80’s! For decades, I have had his music on my walkman, discman, and now my iPod, and have walked, run and danced … Continue Reading »
Cushions, by far, are the quickest and easiest gift for that someone special, and each year, I tend to make thousands of them! Ok, maybe 20? There’s a special tag for these posts here on my blog – cushion cover marathon – so here are the first two cushions for 2016! This first one was a special order from a dear friend of mine. Living in Japan, her eldest son is finishing at Kindergarten/Day Care, and has had the same wonderful teacher for … Continue Reading »
